Jun 12th 2014

that and "larger goals"
Jun 12th 2014

i think it's more that offsides seems illogical to most
Jun 12th 2014

any way we can rename this post to "WC matchday 1" or something?

           I loved listening to Univision's announcers four years ago
Jun 12th 2014

I ain't doing shit today, btw

yup, same
Jun 12th 2014

I wish I could watch it live
Jun 12th 2014
35
watching Roberto Martinez explain tactics to Lalas is the greatest thing
Jun 12th 2014
38
lmfao. martinez is awesome.
Jun 12th 2014
39
lol... lalas is so awful
Jun 12th 2014

The one redeeming quality of ESPN coverage
Jun 12th 2014
42
*Folds arms*
Jun 12th 2014
43
hahahahaha
Jun 12th 2014
45
Deserved lead...Croatia has been so much sharper out of the gate
Jun 12th 2014
47
But suddenly Brazil remembered how to attack.
Jun 12th 2014
48
neymar is that dude in a brazil jersey.
Jun 12th 2014
49
Oscar deserves a ton of credit for creating that chance
Jun 12th 2014
50
especially since he was pretty much down on the ground
Jun 12th 2014
58
Apropos of nothing, I hope Julio Cesar plays 'til he's 50.
Jun 12th 2014
51
a propos of Julio Cesar
Jun 12th 2014
53
      He just seems like a good dude.
Jun 12th 2014
56
Danny Alves looks lost out there, doesn't appear to be too interested
Jun 12th 2014
55
hes interested in pushing forward
Jun 12th 2014
59
Lalas: "the Croatian keeper should've stopped that"
Jun 12th 2014
57
I was just about to comment, he's so fucking terrible
Jun 12th 2014
61
I thought both teams played well in the 1st half...
Jun 12th 2014
62
Is Paulinho supposed to be good?
Jun 12th 2014
63
Related question: what does Fred do, exactly?
Jun 12th 2014
65
      He's really just there to poach
Jun 12th 2014
66
      diego costa? he plays for spain
Jun 12th 2014
67
      except Costa plays for Spain...
Jun 12th 2014

           Oh my - what a brain fart lol
Jun 12th 2014

                He is. Dual citizenship.

Jun 12th 2014

                well...because he is. he's naturalized Spanish.
Jun 12th 2014
80
                RE: Oh my - what a brain fart lol
Jun 12th 2014
85
      Aha! Fred dives! That's what he does.
Jun 12th 2014
70
You can clearly see the Mourinho influence on Oscar
Jun 12th 2014
64
I like this little spray paint trick
Jun 12th 2014
69
They've been using it in the North American leagues for a couple of year...
Jun 12th 2014
77
that shit was dope!
Jun 12th 2014
115
Refs already favoring Brazilian flopping. SMH.
Jun 12th 2014
71
Lougainis
Jun 12th 2014
72
kaka and cafu sighting.
Jun 12th 2014
74
I guess the ball does lie in this case
Jun 12th 2014
75
welp, that's it for this ref. hopefully.
Jun 12th 2014
76
That's an atrocious penalty call
Jun 12th 2014
79
so horrible. straight up, that's fucking amateur.
Jun 12th 2014
82
RE: That's an atrocious penalty call
Jun 13th 2014
135
      It wasn't a foul.
Jun 13th 2014
138
      he didn't really pull him, he just laid his hands on him
Jun 13th 2014
142
That wasn't a penalty...
Jun 12th 2014
83
They shouldn't feel down but they will. Nothing to show for it
Jun 12th 2014
97
what a disgrace
Jun 12th 2014
84
yes, because American sports never suffer from awful refereeing
Jun 12th 2014
88
      LOL
Jun 12th 2014
89
      that's true
Jun 12th 2014
96
      its not the calls, its the shameless diving and writhing on the ground
Jun 12th 2014
93
           oh please
Jun 12th 2014
99
                primary reason, maybe not. significant contributing factor, definitely....
Jun 12th 2014
109
                     I understand it's annoying, I agree with it too
Jun 12th 2014
111
                     nah. Americans watch the NBA.
Jun 12th 2014
112
                          yeah but the NBA fines players for doing that
Jun 12th 2014
114
                               The NBA fining process is an absolute joke
Jun 12th 2014
120
                               technically, soccer players can get ejected for diving
Jun 13th 2014
131
                               all leagues do retroactive discipline, even UEFA/FIFA
Jun 13th 2014
132
                                    MLS is the only one i'm aware of that enforces it though
Jun 14th 2014
241
                               neither was your initial point
Jun 13th 2014
134
Oscar is the best Brazilian by a wide margin today
Jun 12th 2014
87
Yep, I agree. n/m
Jun 12th 2014
90
Yup, not even close
Jun 12th 2014
91
another dubious call (Olic on Julio Cesar)
Jun 12th 2014
92
Def borderline at best, but I don't have a problem with that call
Jun 12th 2014
94
      as they should if he gets there first or if it's 50/50
Jun 12th 2014
105
           Right, but that's a very bang-bang judgement
Jun 12th 2014
107
                you make up for the bogus PK and swallow the whistle in this sitch
Jun 12th 2014
110
                     Well firstly, the linesman called the foul
Jun 12th 2014
121
                          you may be right, he might not know
Jun 12th 2014
123
                               LOL
Jun 13th 2014
128
If this team is the favorite...I BELIEVE!!!
Jun 12th 2014
95
if Croatia was better in the air, they'd have won
Jun 12th 2014
98
what chances?
Jun 12th 2014
116
      uh, no.
Jun 12th 2014
124
      They had a great chance in the 10th minute
Jun 13th 2014
129
           right and then after 15m it was basically nothing
Jun 13th 2014
133
just like that CRO goes from stalking down the equalizer...
Jun 12th 2014
100
how the hell?
Jun 12th 2014
101
i hope they bury this ref for good.
Jun 12th 2014
102
Oscar is so damn good...but that's really poor GK'ing
Jun 12th 2014
103
oscar caught the gk flat w/ the toepoke.
Jun 12th 2014
104
Flat with his feet in cement
Jun 12th 2014
108
That goal was reminiscent of...
Jun 12th 2014
106
that should have been 2-2. awful officiating.
Jun 12th 2014
113
croatia's goalie was just as bad
Jun 12th 2014
118
Americans: are you guys...
Jun 12th 2014
117
Noon, 3pm, 6pm and 9pm EST.
Jun 12th 2014
119
overnight kickoffs are underrated if you ask me
Jun 12th 2014
122
      Japan/Korea I'd wake up at like 4am or whenever
Jun 13th 2014
130
I'M TOTALLY LEADING THE OKS COPA MADNESS, BTW

Mexico vs Cameroon
Jun 13th 2014
136
So do Americans root for Mexico...
Jun 13th 2014
137
uh, do English fans root for Germany?
Jun 13th 2014
139
      Possibly against France.
Jun 13th 2014
140
      nah
Jun 13th 2014
141
      I understand why you would ask that...
Jun 13th 2014
146
Cameroon look shaky.
Jun 13th 2014
144
Cameroon has gotta be six inches taller at every position.
Jun 13th 2014
143
yeah, they just need one free kick/corner kick
Jun 13th 2014
145
Most hated?
Jun 13th 2014
147
Can someone explain why that corner header goal didn't count?
Jun 13th 2014
148
I'm puzzled too
Jun 13th 2014
149
I'm watching w/one eye and on mute, but imo it should have counted
Jun 13th 2014
150
Yeah I'm lost and new to soccer. I'm real confused.
Jun 13th 2014
151
RE: I'm watching w/one eye and on mute, but imo it should have counted
Jun 13th 2014
152
It doesn't make sense.
Jun 13th 2014
153
      that's what he must have seen, yes
Jun 13th 2014
156
because you're not allowed to cheat.
Jun 13th 2014
154
      Got it.
Jun 13th 2014
155
not paying much attention, but refereeing seems really bad again
Jun 13th 2014
157
Mexico 2 Cameroon 0
Jun 13th 2014
158
      yeah, this is definitely well deserved
Jun 13th 2014
159
Finally got one that counted. That initial save was great though.
Jun 13th 2014
160
Cameroon were terrible...
Jun 13th 2014
161
man the coverage on Univision is so much more fun
Jun 13th 2014
162
Spain v Holland
Jun 13th 2014
163
good looking jersey on Holland (per usual)
Jun 13th 2014
164
      I like their oranges, but solid set of kits overall for sure
Jun 13th 2014
166
damn. wes should've put that one away.
Jun 13th 2014
165
RE: damn. wes should've put that one away.
Jun 13th 2014
167
      it really is
Jun 13th 2014
168
           prescient posting
Jun 13th 2014
169
                these referees all suck balls
Jun 13th 2014
170
                yeah I can't remember a major competition that was this bad this early
Jun 13th 2014
173
                That didn't look like a penalty to me...
Jun 13th 2014
175
                     de vlaar slid
Jun 13th 2014
177
Another Ghost Penalty
Jun 13th 2014
171
I hate that penalty call...that's completely fabricated by Costa
Jun 13th 2014
172
if you peep the replay, he didn't even touch him
Jun 13th 2014
174
Defender certainly created the risk
Jun 13th 2014
176
      honestly, at live speed, I thought he clipped him
Jun 13th 2014
180
is it really that impossible to find a competent referee?
Jun 13th 2014
179
at game speed thats always going to be a pen. the defender fucked up
Jun 13th 2014
181
So Brazil hates this Costa dude huh?
Jun 13th 2014
178

Jun 13th 2014
190
both defenses looking real iffy
Jun 13th 2014
187
Both playing somewhat high lines with minimal pressure on the ball
Jun 13th 2014
189
RVP DA GAWD!!!

ok, this one is totally on Iker *edit* actually, this was a foul.
Jun 13th 2014

I thought for sure that's gonna be waived off
Jun 13th 2014
223
casillas is finished.
Jun 13th 2014
204
I agree he declined, but he was fouled on this goal
Jun 13th 2014

Good reply from England. n/m
Jun 14th 2014
294
      great ball from Rooney
Jun 14th 2014
296
do they give the half-assist to Pirlo on that goal?
Jun 14th 2014
293
can you believe England would consider Sterling a "surprise" inclusion?
Jun 14th 2014
295
smh @ England "physio" getting a severe injury on the celebration...
Jun 14th 2014
297
The pitch in Manaus is rough.
Jun 14th 2014
298
      or they need to take line-dancing lessons from Colombia
Jun 14th 2014
299
      that's under-selling it.
Jun 14th 2014
301
Balotelli might need to come off in the 2d half
Jun 14th 2014
300
that lob attempt was really sweet, though
Jun 14th 2014
302
      no doubt
Jun 14th 2014

Is Rooney in England's best XI?
Jun 14th 2014
307
England's? no. Nike's? sadly, yes.
Jun 14th 2014
308
Waste of space.
Jun 15th 2014
331
was it the pitch that made Rooney put that corner into the stands?
Jun 14th 2014
309
apparently Rooney thinks WC stands for Worst Corner
Jun 14th 2014
310
Is it just that he's in decline already?
Jun 14th 2014
312
      Wayne needs to switch sponsors, sign up for that Kobe System

Jun 15th 2014
328
Yeah, I caught that one, but I found it more strange that they would
Jun 15th 2014
347
      it's funny, tho, I did hear Bob Bradley speak on his time with Egypt
Jun 15th 2014
350
           Being a soccer novice, it's more about using a stat like that
Jun 15th 2014
353
           to further illustrate, they just ran a stat the FRA is 17-0 when leading
Jun 15th 2014
374
Good first half...
Jun 14th 2014

Can Italy ever really be a "dark horse?"
Jun 15th 2014
335

The Honduran flopping is sad. They know they have no chance
Jun 15th 2014

Jun 15th 2014
362
They are really hyped now.
Jun 15th 2014
369
28' - France with the improbable 2:1 yellow card lead
Jun 15th 2014
361
The Hondurans deserve Oscars.
Jun 15th 2014
366

Jun 15th 2014

Palacios didn't even make it to halftime lol
Jun 15th 2014
368
there you go with la Marseillaise
Jun 15th 2014

Jun 15th 2014
372
Ugh w/ this "goal-line technology."
Jun 15th 2014
373
Have you seen the Lloris side of the field since the 1st half?
Jun 15th 2014
375
they were not trying to attack at full strength
Jun 15th 2014
378
      I wouldn't want that NED spanking/embarrasment either.
Jun 15th 2014
381
           do you have Honduran ties?
Jun 15th 2014
383
                A little bit of the latter
Jun 15th 2014

Jun 15th 2014

That Figueroa long-shot explains it all.
Jun 15th 2014
387
Honduras are EASILY the worst team I've watched so far
Jun 15th 2014
388
I'm mostly irritated by one-trick pony Figueroa.
Jun 15th 2014

What's the history on Bos-Herz?
Jun 15th 2014

Jun 16th 2014
409
The fuck was he even thinking?
Jun 16th 2014
418
      He wasn't...which is far too often an accurate description of Pepe
Jun 16th 2014
420
Lol. Robson straight shut down Darke's theatrics about CR7
Jun 16th 2014
411
That's not Ian Darke...
Jun 16th 2014
430
Less likable: Honduras or Portugal?

C'mon Mesut...gotta finish. That chance was far too easy though lol
Jun 16th 2014
422
LOL. Nani taking the ball off Coentrao's left foot
Jun 16th 2014
423
Damn shame to see Coentrao go down.
Jun 16th 2014
424
Yeh, that's two starters for Portugal today. Both look like muscle pulls
Jun 16th 2014
425
      Don't forget Pepe with the brain aneurysm!
Jun 16th 2014
426
Shit, hopefully Hummels is ok. I didnt see a twist at least
Jun 16th 2014
427
Wow, that's a clear penalty imo
Jun 16th 2014
428
All Mueller does is score goals...8 in 7 WC games is astonishing
Jun 16th 2014
429
Just like Klose in the WC
Jun 16th 2014

For the record, what is this crossing of arms intro
Jun 16th 2014

12. "is there anything worse than NPR dipping its toes into WC reporting?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

sub-question: is there anything more obnoxious that the ever-present cliche during these times, "no one understands the offsides rule"?

I'm willing to concede a shockingly high % of futbol fans don't understand the need for two people to be between ball and goal* (b/c it really only applies when a player is 1v1 with the goalie or on really odd goalmouth scrambles), but the "can't be heind the last man" thing is NOT HARD, AMERICA!


*aside -- I took a soccer PE class in high school once and this was emphasized and a paper test was given where I got it all wrong, thinking I understood offsides, but rest assured in all the manic obsessive soccer watching since then, I've sorted it all out, can spot it live easy. Shoot, I just passed Zach Loyd on the sidewalk today and recognized him, and he's an infrequent starter for the visiting team, something has definitely gone wrong.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

Every so often there is a play where the goalkeeper is out of position, and the play is still called offside due to lack of a player between the opposition and the goal. I had to have it explained to me more than a couple of times.

127. "i think it's more that offsides seems illogical to most"
In response to Reply # 12


          

i remember when i was trying to get into soccer and a friend told me to play FIFA on Playstation. so i was like, "aight cool, that helped with Madden" so i tried it. every time they blew the whistle and called me offside, i was so thoroughly confused. i was like, "why can't i pass it to him when he's wide open?". we're so used to trying to find the open man in sports like football and basketball that it takes some time to wrap your head around the idea of the soccer offsides rule.

at the time you could explain the rule to me and i'd get what it was, but i just couldn't get WHY it was against the rules. it took a long time.

as discussed in the buildup post doing separate threads for each group stage matchday works pretty well. Matchday 1 goes from 06/12 to 06/17

matchday 2 - 06/17-06/22
matchday 3 - 06/23-06/26

He perfectly explains how torn I am between excitement for soccer, and sadness at how awful FIFA and the Brazilian Government is.

Also has hilarious bits like how terrible Sepp Blatter is and the fact that FIFA is actually making a movie about itself ("where the business executives are the good guys!").

They're making a fun, festive, welcoming environment for people to enjoy a fun, festive, multicultural global sporting event. I

Not only dug out the ball vs two defenders but then calmly releases Neymar with a slight flick. Looked like Neymar scuffed that shot but it had a seeing-eye evidently.

In response to Reply # 0


          

Croatia played really tight, stopping Brazil from having space to play. They looked good on the counter attack.

Brazil were a bit nervous in the first 10 minutes, but they had a spark after that own goal and started putting on the pressure - it paid off with a goal.

So far Oscar and Rakitić both look like the best players on the field.

Bring on the 2nd half.

If that's a penalty, then you can have 4-5 a game...easily.

Terribly taken penalty too...Neymar is very fortunate. If the keeper gets a flat palm, he has to parry that aside.

In response to Reply # 79


  

          

was it though?

seriously, yes, I'm seriously asking

obviously, I'm not a soccer head

but I do get into the WC

I'm sayin'

he grabbed Fred by both of his shoulders and pulled him back

yes Fred flopped, but that's what soccer players do right?

and it was smart, but I'm not convinced that it wasn't a foul

Fred knew where he was, knew it was a foul, and made sure the ref saw it

I have more of a problem with this play being the story

did we really expect there to NOT be a flop?

the ref plea cop in all sports really gets on my f'n nerves

it was a foul, yes?

it wasn't a smart thing to do as a defender, because it gives the flopper a clear cut opportunity, but if the refs called foul for this type of thing, they would basically be whistling on any given play

the short version is what Buck said: no, it wasn't a foul

Fred went down too easily. Goalkeeper should of saved it.

If Croatia lose this game, I don't think they should feel down; they've played quite well, especially in defense.

You have a lead, are hard done by the ref, and have multiple free header chances from good header players....you can't not feel down imo regardless of the positive play.

Although with footy, you can argue that due to the scarcity of goals, a refereeing decision is often more impactful than the other sports.

In response to Reply # 89


  

          

which is why they should definitely allow video replay on PK calls
or at least be more systematic about retroactive suspensions...Fred should be dismissed for a game or two now; wouldn't make up for the goal, but it would be something

diving is not the reason why Americans don't care about soccer
that may the reason people are giving when asked about it, but that's not the real reason
and I don't think you're dense enough to believe it is

109. "primary reason, maybe not. significant contributing factor, definitely...."
In response to Reply # 99


  

          

The general American sporting consciousness has been conditioned to admire the guys who put their heads down and play thru pain and injury.

The guys who hit the deck every time theres contact and then act like they hit a land mine inspire contempt.

Thats a significant hurdle to entry for most American sports fans.

but ppl haven't stopped paying attention to the NBA during the Heat's run despite the flopping and histrionics and they wouldn't pay that much more attention to soccer if there were none. There are a lot of other factors, I'm not sure why you want to rationalize it through this one (while sounding, at least on the surface, somewhat smug about it)

112. "nah. Americans watch the NBA."
In response to Reply # 109


  

          

Americans keep watching the NFL even after Urlacher came out and admitted players were faking injuries all the time

they don't watch soccer because
1- the US are not good at it (bit of chicken/egg situation)
2- there's not enough scoring
3- it requires a different attention span than all American sports (the closest would be hockey, and that's the least popular of the major sports)

diving/cheating is just the easiest answer

114. "yeah but the NBA fines players for doing that"
In response to Reply # 112


  

          

So in that instance, the governing body is taking action against it

Granted the fine amounts are a pittance compared to what players earn but still its an action.

In the NFL, yes play stops if a guy goes down holding a fake injury. But games dont turn on flopping and diving. The comparison is not very good.

120. "The NBA fining process is an absolute joke"
In response to Reply # 114


  

          

I'm not even talking about the amount of money, I'm talking about the number of flops that go unpunished. The fines have done nothing to curtail the flopping and it's actually becoming more rampant...all the NBA does is fine the completely ridiculous ones, that doesn't account for 95% of the other flops that go on consistently.

131. "technically, soccer players can get ejected for diving"
In response to Reply # 114


  

          

because "simulation" is a cardable offense and a FK is awarded against the team with the diving player. If a player were to receive a 2nd yellow card for simulation, they could be ejected from the game. The problem is you rarely see referees actually pull a card for diving, because the fact is the players are really good at it and it's difficult for one person to be able to determine with 100% accuracy during a live match.

Should also be noted that MLS is doing, actually has been doing for the last two years, same as the NBA, retroactive discipline for simulation. It's been just about as effective as the NBA's efforts in actually curbing the behavior, but hey -- if knowing guys get slapped on the wrist for it makes you feel better, that does happen.

when's the last time someone got retroactively fined/suspsended for diving in a EUFA league? MLS is giving out fines and suspensions every week. if someone else regularly enforces it, i don't hear about it much.

they were as dangerous as, if not more than Brazil in the first half
it was counters, they didn't hold the ball, but they had the better chances (that Olic header in particular)

they did step down in the second half...but mostly, they got jobbed

Cross to the far-post, right over the out of position Alves (shocking, I know)...completely clean header from 7 yards...really needs to be on net at least and it goes 3 yards wide. Croatia was pretty damn good in the first 15 mins going forward , they were killing Marcelo and Alves.

If it works anyone wanna tryit out for fun?



1. Rank teams 1-32

2.In the group stage teams receive the same number of points as they do in pool
3perW
1perD
0perL

(maybe add some multiplier here based on seeding?)

3a. If a team wins the Round of 16game you get 1 pt + whatever rank you have them.
i.e. Brazil wins and they're you;re #1 ranked team you get 1pt for W+ 1pt for seeding.

no, precisely because the defender touched it, they should not have been called offside

Yes, you're right. It was mistake by the assistant ref.

In response to Reply # 150


  

          

The only thing I could possibly understand is if the assistant ref saw the ball coming off the attackers head. Then, the ball would have been considered a pass and possibly offside. Any other call is just plain wrong.

You're such pests...now, what is it you want? In your depths of your ignorance, what is it you want? Well, whatever it is you want, I can't deliver because I just don't see it. - Orson Welles

In response to Reply # 175


  

          

if you slide on a fake and make contact, they're always giving it to the attacking player
in this instance, there was actually no contact at all...

but that's what you get for a dumb slide tackle attempt, good defenders stay on their feet

The run, the ball, the impeccable finish by RVP.

Lol Ramos lol...not sure if he was trying to play the high line but he let RVP go right off his shoulder and Pique played him in by 3 yards.

>the impeccable finish by RVP.
>

if he chests it, he's likely to get to close to Casillas and give him a much better chance in the 1-on-1
he saw him come up from the corner of his eye and made up his mind to go for the lob in a split second

he was coming out to close the angles, as most players would have tried to score on two touches in this situation
this was just a stroke of genius from RVP

after they scored first, I really thought it was a wrap, but for some reason they're not dominating possession like they usually do

and now things could get worse for them because the dutch are traditionally a great counter team

Not gonna get out of the group playing like this. Shit defense, shit goalkeeping, shit finishing.

Only player who wasn't embarrassing himself was alba. And I guess Cesar and Xavi. Give de gea a start, replace Xavi Alonso with Martinez, and silva with cesc or something. Fuck balls. Guess you have to go through Brazil eventually if you want a chance to win, just didn't want it to be so early. Then again, play even half fs badly against chile, and you'll lose again. Fuck.

Not that there was any way ajax was going to hang onto him in the first place, but I was at least hoping for another year there. It's prolly gonna happen this summer

this is what happens. Their midfield is flabby and sick... there is no way a Ramos/Pique partnership can withstand that lack of protection. They weren't "tired" at the Confederations Cup lol. I don't know why that old, old man with the trophies he has won doesn't turn a new leaf.. it could only further his legacy.

Xavi and koke arent comparable in terms of position (koke is waaaaaay too attacking oriented to replace xavi. Thiago woulda been the option, but he's hurt) and xavi wasnt the problem. He handed costa three primo chances. It was the backline and dmfs.

Im still mad.

That goal is a "goal of the tournament" contender. Nice play altogether.

the first Van Persie and first Robben ones
or even with the second Chilean goal

and it's still early, so I don't think it's going to be anywhere near the top of the list at tournament's end

It sounds to me like the Univision dude keeps saying "tiro de quina" for corner kicks instead of "tiro de esquina". Am I hearing wrong or is that a common expression?

In response to Reply # 250


          

escuela = e~cuela

pescado = pe~cado (actually, it's more like pe~cao)

And that ~ is a subtle, brief kinda back-of-the-throat breathing out/"hawking" sound, so "de esquina" turns into "de~quina".

he went down in the box kind of instinctively after pushing the ball too far, but immediately signaled there was no foul

if only it could go down like that every time
